Mythic Keystone Dungeons at 7.2 Launch

Recommended Posts

yJb6Wel.jpg

With the launch of Patch 7.2, the difficulty and rewards from Mythic+ dungeons are getting increased.

Blizzard is increasing the difficulty of Mythic Keystone Dungeons, but at the same time, adding item levels to rewards from the end-of-run caches and the weekly Order Hall cache. Lore also explains that during launch week, your Order Hall cache will use the 7.2 scaling and contain an item up to item level 905.

Mythic+ Changes in 7.2

Plenty of changes are coming to Mythic+ dungeons and 7.2 even adds several new affixes. More information can be found in our Patch 7.2 Survival Guide.

With the release of Patch 7.2, we’re increasing the difficulty of (and rewards from) Mythic Keystone Dungeons. To help you prepare, we’d like to provide some clarity on what those changes entail.

After Patch 7.2 has been released, the minimum item level of the rewards found in the end-of-run chests will be as follows:
Mythic 2-3: 870
Mythic 4-5: 875
Mythic 6-7: 880
Mythic 8-9: 885
Mythic 10+: 890

(Note: bosses in Mythic Dungeons run with no Keystone active will drop item level 865 gear.)

The minimum item level of the rewards in the weekly Challenger’s Bounty chest (found in your Order Hall) will be based on the highest difficulty Mythic Keystone dungeon you cleared that week, as follows:
Mythic 2: 875
Mythic 3: 880
Mythic 4: 885
Mythic 5: 890
Mythic 6: 890
Mythic 7: 895
Mythic 8: 895
Mythic 9: 900
Mythic 10+: 905

So, if you clear a Mythic dungeon using a level 6 Keystone after the patch is released, you’ll see gear of at least item level 880 at the end of the run, and will get a piece of gear with an item level of at least 890 in your weekly chest. Keep in mind that the difficulty of the dungeons themselves is increasing to match these rewards.

As we transition from Patch 7.1.5 to Patch 7.2, you’ll get a lower-level Keystone with the reset this week than you may otherwise be expecting. This is due to the increase in difficulty of these dungeons in Patch 7.2. For example, if you completed a level 9 Keystone in patch 7.1.5 and then were given the usual level 6 Keystone next week, that’d actually be an increase in difficulty. To avoid this, we’re making these adjustments for this week only to reduce the level of Keystone you receive based on what you’ve completed this week:

Mythic 2-8: level 2 Keystone
Mythic 9-10: level 3 
Mythic 11: level 4
Mythic 12: level 5
Mythic 13-14: level 6
Mythic 15: level 7
(each difficulty level above 15 increases next week’s Keystone level by 1)

As to the gear you’ll find in your weekly chest, its item level will still be based on the highest dungeon you complete this week, but the rewards will be based on the new 7.2 scaling. To put it more directly: completing a Keystone dungeon of difficulty 10 or higher this week will result in a reward with a minimum item level of 905 in your next weekly chest, which is the current maximum reward in Patch 7.2.

We hope this helps clear the air on what you can expect from Mythic Keystone dungeons next week, as well as what you’ll find waiting for you in your Challenger’s Bounty chest. Good luck!

      We have a big one today as Lorekeeper.net got a hold of Narrative Lead Steve Danuser and got a whole lot of new info from him on many different aspects of the Shadowlands. We even got an answer to the very frequently asked question about what happens to Alternate Universe souls when they die, aka is there an AU Shadowlands! And even thought the answer is somewhat vague, it's a definitive one - there is only one Shadowlands and all souls from any parallel universes end up there.

      We also learned a lot more from the interview, like:
      Time is different in the Shadowlands and that affects everything else (related to most of the other answers below). Other cosmic force characters (Life, Death, Order, Disorder, Light, Void), like the Naaru, don't go to the Shadowlands when they die, as they go back to their point of origin and reform over time, barring any intervention. Some Necromancer class rumors were dispelled, Maldraxxus wasn't intended as a tease for it. We got an explanation as to what exactly happens when someone is raised from the dead, with the Forsaken in focus and their relationship to Death as the cosmic force that now anchors their souls to their bodies, whereas Life served that function when they were alive. And so their souls are not in the Shadowlands but simply bound to their bodies by a different source than in life. We also found out what the relationships of couples and close relationships are like after death in the Shadowlands - with another relatively vague answer with Draka's example - basically she's busy with the events in the Shadowlands to think about her mortal life, and since time is different she doesn't really perceive it as an issue. There are additional parts of the Shadowlands the team didn't get to explore, but will in future updates. There's a whole lot to more unpack and read about in the massive interview, and all of it is extremely interesting, and not only for lore enthusiasts, as the Shadowlands really does act as a big setup for expanding the Warcraft universe. Definitely go check out the full thing as it's full of pretty huge revelations, even in addition to the highlights we pulled out above.

      We have some more very interesting maps to take a look at, as redditor ChromeDragon has created a new territorial/political map for Classic/Vanilla, featuring both the civilized races and the somewhat more savage/adversarial mob races as well! These two maps are also interesting to use as comparison to how things changed later down the line in Warcraft's history, especially with the Cataclysm and more recent, tree-burning and Warfront events.
      We start off with the new map, featuring the less civilized or forgotten races of Azeroth or rather the player antagonists int he game, those that don't show up on other similar maps. They don't hold quite as much territory, what with players coming in every 2 minutes and ransacking their homes, but it's still interesting to see where some of the more prominent settlements are. From Murlocs to Furbolgs, Centaurs, Harpies, Quillboars and so on, there's many of them out there controlling a lot of territory and while there might be some missing, it's still a great overview!

      The exact description from ChromeDragon for the above was "Basically a political map of azeroth if you removed all the races capable of building two story buildings", which sparked quite a fun conversation over on reddit, so make sure to check that out as well.
      And then there's the older, more traditional map, created quite a while ago, covering the territories of the races and tribes we're more familiar with, from playable races to NPC ones, like Orcs, Night Elves, Dwarves and organizations like the Scarlet Crusade, Cenarion Circle etc.

      Here come more realm connections, and the citizens of Khadgar are terrified. The postponed connection of their realm with 3 others caused a little time travel accident and reverted many characters to their Mists of Pandaria days, or as Blizzard refer to it below it "ran into issues".
      Let's hope it goes smoothly this time around, as the aftermath of the previous "issues" is still being resolved.
      Realm Connections (source)
      Following regularly scheduled weekly maintenance on Tuesday, September 29, the following realms will be taken offline. During this additional maintenance period:
      The Exodar and Medivh realms will be connected to the Alleria and Khadgar realms. As many players know, this connection was previously planned and ran into issues.
      On Tuesday, we’ll begin the additional maintenance period for these four realms at 8:00 am. PDT (11:00 a.m. EDT), and the realms will come back online when the connection process is completed, which we’re estimating to be around 4:00 p.m. PDT (7:00 p.m. EDT).
